Dar Williams has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New
Yorker. She’s released ten studio albums and authored four books including her latest, “What I
Found In A Thousand Towns,” to be released in September.
Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has
been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting
since the '90s. Williams’ growth as an individual over her two-decade-long career has gone
hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished peers
as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin among
others.
Dar's most recent album, Emerald, “deals as bluntly as ever with the shadowy, subtle corners of
humanity” according to Rolling Stone, and was recorded with friends such as Richard
Thompson, Jill Sobule, Jim Lauderdale, the Milk Carton Kids, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Suzzy
Roche, the Hooters and others in various studios across the U.S. It is a sparkling collection of
new original material, inspired collaborations and some surprising covers such as B.A.D.’s
“Johnny Appleseed” making this album one of her best yet.
"Dar Williams, one of America's very best singer-songwriters… Her songs are beautiful. Some
are like finely crafted short stories. They are, variously, devastatingly moving, tenderly funny,
subtle without being in any way inaccessible, and utterly fresh—not a cliché or a clunker in her
entire songbook." -The New Yorker
